I read or heard somewhere that the pixel shift on the K1ii worked more like a smart phone and not the same as on the K1? Can anyone tell me if this is correct?

Cheeky sod.
Some smart 'phones do a similar thing to pixel shift but in a different way????? I read or saw a review that said the K1ii used this technology instead of moving the sensor???. I thought someone else may have a bit more information on the subject???

The new Dynamic Pixel Shift feature works this way, but the Pentax version is supposedly better as the camera detects exactly how much sensor movement there has been between each frame due to handheld vibrations. It then stacks the images together producing a 'super resolution' image.

The standard Pixel Shift still exists on the cameras and produces the best results.

Thanks Haris. I'll have to see if I can find the review as that did give a good explanation but I just forgot what it was.

The Dynamic pixel shift on the K1 II uses the movement of the users hands to produce the four different shots, rather than moving the sensor by 1 pixel each time.

As HarisF1 points out, the camera's SR system then stacks the images exactly. It has been mentioned that this is nothing other than picture stacking/super resolution that any camera (even a smartphone) can do. But the point is that with the K1 there is no need to "stack" the images yourself in PP software.

The Dynamic PS is not a replacement for the original PS, you get both.

I found a DPReview from a few days ago and it explains it very well.

Don't take any notice of their review. They don't like Pentax. Have a look at the uproar in the forum.
